2018 Longines Rising Ski Stars winners and Swiss siblings Mélanie and Loïc Meillard in Saint-Imier for the visit of Longines’ headquarters

Alpine Skiing
May 29, 2018

The Swiss watch brand Longines was delighted to welcome today in Saint-Imier the winners of the 2018 Longines Rising Ski Stars Mélanie and Loïc Meillard for a visit of the company’s headquarters.  Accompanied by Longines Vice President and Head of International Marketing Juan-Carlos Capelli, the Swiss siblings and world-class skiers had the opportunity to discover the various stages of the exciting process of the production of a Longines watch, as well as the brand’s museum, which retraces the brand's fascinating history through the ages.

Proudly wearing a Conquest Saint-Moritz model awarded by Longines in recognition of her 2018 Longines Rising Ski Stars title, Mélanie commented: “After winning the Longines Rising Ski Stars prize at the end of the last FIS Alpine World Cup, it was obvious that we wanted to know more about this emblematic company, deeply established in our region.”  And Loïc added: "Now that this is done, we can say that we are very impressed by the rich history of the brand. Like Longines, we are proud to represent this region on an international level.”
